Newbies unite

In showbiz, we do have our seasoned veterans, however, what makes Philippine showbiz throb and sizzle are the newbies, up starters and young bloods who become sources of inspiration or subjects of infamy.

My dear followers and readers of Arias, let me introduce the 10 newbies who are sure to make a big splash and reign in 2019.

Shido Roxas—he was part of the most awarded MMFF 2018 film Rainbow’s Sunset, with 11 trophies that included Best Picture, and Best Director for Joel Lamangan. Shido plays the young Eddie Garcia in the much-loved motion picture. Brawny, brainy, with an arresting screen presence and is more than willing to be daring if his role calls for it. There is more to Shido than being a beefcake.
